"Frontend" is no longer just about rendering static HTML elements in the browser. Many companies are building interactive, data-intensive client-side applications that unleash the full potential of Javascript. In this talk, attendees will learn how to build high-performance, client-side applications for analyzing and visualizing millions of data points in the browser. Further, attendees will hear about popular opensource frameworks - powered by WebGL and leveraging client-side GPU - and how to build a Javascript application on top of those frameworks.
